EAA Chapter 228 just finished our April 14 Young Eagles event at Mesa Falcon Field. In all, 13 young adults were given their first small plane ride by a total of 6 volunteer pilots. By any measure, the event was a great success with smiling faces from parents and children alike. Be sure to see our Photos page for pictures and videos of the event.
